The Concept-cX sports a Lancer-like snout on a hatchback-style body with an upward-sweeping character line along its flanks. The crossover vehicle is Euro 5 emissions-compliant, powered by a 1.8L clean diesel engine that features a variable-geometry turbocharger, a diesel oxidation catalyst, and a diesel particulate filter.
The economical powerplant is mated to Mitsubishi's twin-clutch transmission, and its interior will make use ofenvironmentally-friendly Green Plastic. The 13-foot-long CUV also uses an electronic 4WD system and incorporates an SUV-style high seating position. No cargo capacity numbers have been given yet, but Mitsubishi did say that a split tailgate is used at the rear of the vehicle. The "photo" looks like it could be a rendering, but it shows a slightly less aggressive vehicle than the sketches. We'll keep you posted as more information on this Concept-cX becomes available and add live shots of it from next month's Frankfurt show.
